Quality Christian Holidays
When God speaks to Moses in Exodus 33:14, He reminds us, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest”. What a joy it is that our Heavenly Father loves to be with us in relationship and in rest!
This message is at the heart of each Richmond holiday; we offer you space to relax, explore your faith and invest in friendships. In these incredible locations and at our UK office, our Christian staff teams always start the day with prayer and Bible study, putting God first and seeking His wisdom and blessing for the adventures that lie ahead.
If you’re ready for adventure or seeking rest, we hope to see you in one of our resorts soon!
